Live from the University of Chicago! Endoscopic Advances For Your Clinical Practice 2019

Chicago, IL US
April 12, 2019 to April 13, 2019
The field of endoscopy burgeoned from the ability to look at gross lining with the scope camera to broaden out to a myriad of different technologies using the scope as the vehicle. Visualization has gone beyond looking at the surface to assessing details at even a microscopic level with endomicroscopy. Diagnostics have improved with improved tissue acquisition in previously challenging areas in the pancreaticobiliary system with ERCP, cholangioscopy, advanced imaging techniques, and EUS FNA. Surgeons and oncologists increasingly rely on endoscopists for appropriate diagnosis and staging. Previously surgically treated benign and malignant diseases are now treated endoscopically, including pseudocyst drainage, endoscopic resection and ablation. The lines between surgery and endoscopy are blurred with the entertainment of transluminal surgery.
All of these new frontiers of endoscopy are rapidly evolving, and it is critical for practicing physicians to be updated on the latest evidence, practice, and technology. In a dynamic and interactive setting, this conference will outline where standard practices in endoscopy are currently and new innovations may enhance or revolutionize endoscopy practices in the future.
